I suggest you ...

Provide the ability to turn backups on or off after a droplet has been created

Currently if a droplet is created without automatic backups enabled, the option to backup that droplet becomes unavailable. This should be something we can turn on and off at any time.

        This is a very serious limitation. I was all excited by your offering but this shortcoming is a downer.

        Yes, this is a very important function for user experience!

        Not just be able to turn it on off but also have a schedule, instead of "periodic" backups we should be able to choose daily, weekly, or monthly. For me I only need weekly, and it would be nice to know that it's backed up ever Sunday rather than have it be random and not know whether to panic or not when something goes wrong.

        Very disappointed to find this out now. It should be made very clear when creating a droplet that the backup option is a once in a droplet opportunity not to be missed! Please add this option soon!

        This is a must have for many of our use cases. Please do it!

        It's a little strange this capability is missing.
